Crude prices continued to slip on oversupply concerns and prolonged weakness in the European economic block. Brent crude, priced in London, added another 0.8% to hit $61.50 per barrel. Meanwhile, April 2015 futures for U.S. crude, priced at the NYMEX in New York City, jumped nearly 0.2% to hit $51.17 per barrel. The latter price decline comes a day after Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) released a research note saying it expected U.S. crude to fall to roughly $40 per barrel.
